Here are Magnuz of Sweden's projects in Second Life.

My early projects, at the end of the list below, were mainly for my own fun and to learn how to build, texture and script in Second Life. Also my recent projects, at the beginning of the list below, is much about learning more about the possibilities in Second Life, but the aim is also to build a small portfolio of samples and inspiration on how Second Life can be used for scientific, educational and other information purposes. I especially hope to be able to produce "4D" models, i.e. models which allow the spectator to follow and control an event over time in a 3D model, e.g. motion of celestial bodies, nuclear and chemical reactions, processes in living cells and organisms, the development of buildings and cities, weather and plate tectonics.

My speciality so far is the processing of large bodies of data, to be able to present them in a surveyable way in Second Life. For that I use various search methods to find the basic data, data-bases and spread-sheets to compile and structure it, custom-made programs and scripts to process it, 3D and graphic programs to make it presentable, building and texturing in Second Life to do the actual presentations, and scripting in Second Life to make the presentations animated and interactive. My skills in all the mentioned techniques, together with my broad competence in many scientific areas and communication training as a scientist, teacher, author and journalist, make me able to carry out even complex projects in an efficient way.
